In this video, Fool.com contributor Aimee Duffy talks about three reasons to sell Enterprise Products Partners :

  • High debt levels.
  • Exposure to commodity risk, particularly with its NGL business.
  • Significant assets in the Gulf of Mexico, an area prone to hurricanes and potential moratoriums for offshore spills.

Enterprise is on a tear of late, and though Aimee doesn't advocate selling, she acknowledges the importance of reminding ourselves of a company's threats so as to stay balanced and keep from getting swept away in the good times.
